Two Poems

clouds with some blue
outside my study window
some days God seems so clear
other days I must dwell more deeply
in my reading of the Psalms

*

writing and reading
I don’t see the dust

then seeing
I remember

and know He does not forget
and understands

with Love

Psalm 103: 14 (KJV)
For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth we are dust.

after many
good conversations
one bird
sings the day
to sunset

small blankets

as if they could
store the sun
small blankets
on a chair
add color to
the scene
as they await
to warm
another time

Poems

*
names and addresses
for dear friends
no longer on earth
old address book

*
not yet written
in the overflowing book
cards and envelopes
with last known
addresses

*
still wanting to remember
what may no longer
be current – places I was
people I knew
